 Fine-tuning SpamAssassin

"No spam filter gets it right all the time, and there are 2 types of errors. False negatives are bad, because that means a spam was missed and allowed to slip through the net. False positives, however, are worse, because you may miss something you should have seen, which has been tagged as spam. No spam filter should ever be configured to automatically delete email without human review. Spam should always be dropped into a quarantine area, which should be reviewed at frequent intervals to ensure that genuine emails aren't missed."
